This class is for both native English speakers and for students who are learning English as a second language or as a foreign language. If you would like to meet me first, before committing to a class, please visit my "Office Hours" class for USD$1: 12 and under: https://outschool.com/classes/office-hours-for-current-future-learners-enrolled-in-classes-with-pamela-7-12y-n4RWvPd2#ustAYO53Uy 13 to 18: ...
- Learners will write a work of creative fiction over this 6-week course, and they will learn how to proofread and edit their own work, and how to push through any writer's block that they may encounter. - Learners will practice reading, writing, vocabulary, spelling, grammar, listening, speaking, and pronunciation.
I am a native English speaker with a 150-hour TESOL qualification from Arizona State University and post-graduate qualifications in Applied Linguistics from Monash University. I am also a lawyer in Australia and I homeschool my own children, therefore writing, speaking, and teaching clearly have been a part of my life for many years, and now I am also applying these skills to teaching others. Other applicable courses that I have completed that pertain to this class include: - Reason and Persuasion: Thinking Through Three Dialogues By Plato; - Technology and Ethics; - ADHD: Everyday Strategies for Elementary Students; - The Clinical Psychology of Children and Young People; - Everyday Parenting: The ABCs of Child Rearing; - A Brief History of Humankind.
If possible, I recommend working on your story for at least 30 minutes per day every day during this 6 week period so that you get the most out of our live classes and asynchronous virtual classroom.
Learners will need paper and pens or pencils to write with, or a word processor to type with, in order to complete tasks.
Informal assessment via feedback, proofreading, editing, drafting, writing prompts, and anything else that you require assistance with.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 4+ hours per week outside of class.
- Learners will not need to access the internet outside of Outschool during our live classes. - When applicable, I will screen share Google Slides in our live classes. - When applicable, I will share YouTube videos in our classroom.
